Hours later the Home Ministry, through a series of tweets, cleared some doubts about the CAA. 

Earlier in the day, it was announced that the Home Ministry in consultation with the Law Ministry is preparing the rules for implementation of the CAA. 

An official, in a statement, said: 

No one will get Indian citizenship automatically. One has to prove eligibility. There is no intention to throw people out. People are over-worried. Law has sufficient safeguard.
